Smart decorating is greener than you think

Everyday Green Practices

Undoubtedly, in this day and age, we are all concerned about the state of our environment. We use city-issued recycling bins, purchase “green” household cleaners, purchase energy-efficient light bulbs and conserve energy in the home by turning off lights, etc. We may have had a home energy-audit done to learn ways of making our home more energy-efficient. 

What about home furnishings?
Here’s my list of smart decorating practices (that also just happen to be green):
1. Buy quality
2. Buy classic
3. Buy less
4. Buy local
5. Buy vintage or architectural salvage
6. Reuse, refinish, reupholster
7. Buy green

I’ll expand on each of these over the next few weeks.
